This tropical dish can be broiled as well. Be sure to soak the skewers in water before threading the meat and pineapple on. I'll even soak them in the marinade.
- 1 lb beef, cut in 1 inch cubes
- 1 (16 ounce) can pineapple chunks in juice
- 1⁄2 cup soy sauce
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1⁄2 teaspoon minced ginger
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sliced lemongrass
- 1⁄4 cup sliced scallion
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- Combine all ingredients, including liquid from pineapple, and marinate, covered and refrigerated, 1-3 hours.
- Thread beef and pineapple alternately on metal skewers or soaked wooden skewers. Discard leftover marinade. Grill about 5-8 minutes, turning once, until beef is cooked.
Great kabobs! Made as directed but added a few red pepper pieces and some mushroom. I wouldn't change a thing.

We loved this recipe!!! I think it tasted better than your standard teriyaki recipes with the added flavors of the pineapple, ginger and sesame oil. I used a 1 1/4 lb flank steak, which I left whole, too lazy to make kabobs. Since I didn't cube the meat before marinating, I used the marinade to baste the steak when on the grill for the first flippings. My DS, his girlfriend and myself loved the flavor and texture of this steak!! Will make this again, especially when my sister visits. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT 7.
This was a different flavored teriyaki than I've had before. Most are very sweet, salty, and sticky; I didn't find this to be so. Including sesame oil- one of my favorite asian ingredients was a real plus for me. The recipe just calls for beef, but I'd make the suggestion to use a cut that's not extremely tender- say a sirloin. Otherwise the acid in the marinade could make the meat slightly mushy. I used a sliced rib-eye, and even though we stuck to the 3 hour marinating time, the texture suffered. The taste was excellent, and I'd be very happy to make this again in the future- just with a different cut of meat. Made for ZWT7- Emerald City Shakers
